Original Airdate: February 16th, 1967
Ricardo Montalban and Madlyn Rhue
The Enterprise encounters the Bounty Bay, a ship that escaped the Earth during the last major war. Within the ship are people
genetically enhanced and the cause of the Eugenics War. The leader is a power mad lunatic Khan Noonian Singh.
But James decides to hold out the olive branch of peace until Khan does something to change that and what a surprise that
he does. He takes over the ship and James is the only one free ala Die Hard to stop a ship full of super powered goons.
I know this is before DIE HARD, don't go writing me saying that this was before DIE HARD. Anyway, I got to admit this is
a good episode. One of the best in the series, no. But a good episode. Ricardo Montalban does make a great villain and
Khan does make a great bad guy. Which is probably why they pick him as the villain for the second movie.
